DEATH OF PIONEER

Mrs. Nancy King, wife of Frederick King of the town of Grover, died sunday afternoon of general debility, due to her advanced years. She was one of the early settlers of Marinette county, having come from New York state with her husband in 1868 and settled on a homestead in the southwestern part of Grover in 1869, where she resided until her death on Sunday.

Mr. and Mrs. King narrowly escaped with their lives during the great fire of 1871, in which they lost all their personal effects. Her husband and four sons, all grown to manhood, survive her. She was in her 78th year. The funeral was held from her late home this afternoon, Rev. E. Hasse conducting the last sad rites.
